Have you ever been told that you needed to ‘read the Bible’ for moral and spiritual guidance? Odds are the person who told you this never read it themselves. In 2007, USA Today reportedover 60% of Americans couldn’t name more than 5 of the 10 Commandments, while nearly half of students thought Sodom and Gomorrah were a married couple. Clearly, it isn’t familiarity with the Bible that makes a person religious. Could it possibly have the opposite effect?
Remember, this book has a talking donkey in it.
I think reading the Bible is the most effective way to lose your faith. There is a snag, however. The Bible is not an enjoyable read. It’s a stuffy, boring, and confusing mess, which explains why so few people read it. My aim is to change that. I want to make the Bible more accessible for people. I want it to be a funny, sarcastic, and honest look at the stories and claims of this book, without any punches being pulled. It’s my belief readers will come to see the Bible for what it really is: a collection of ancient stories, and nothing more.
